Currently October

I left everything at work tonight on purpose! I'm not grading papers or planning. I'm hanging with my homies and watching Merlin. I have to do something at the same time or I'm afraid I'd fall into a deep coma like sleep...I'm that tired. It feels good to be this tired because I know it comes from trying to keep up with the most awesome people I know...first and second graders.

Have you ever had your students do a Currently? I (puffy heart) LOVE Farley's Currently for Kids. If I had brought my work home with me tonight I'd show you the most adorable Currentlys (Currentlies?) you've ever seen. I sent it home as homework and was amazed at the time and thought some of my owlets put into it. I'll show you some next week! 'nough said...Here is my Currently for October...

If it had up to me I would have put more than 24 hours in a day. Next I would have given myself an extra hour in the school day just to have fun with my Owlets! Finally I would make the night three hours longer so I was able to get more sleep and spend a little more time drinking coffee in the mornings! 

My all time favorite field trip was this week. The farm we went to has corn fields, soybeans, a pumpkin patch, pigs, apple trees and more! Giving city kids a chance to see what life on a farm is like is pretty sweet. Check this out...

I love these kids! Seeing all this through their eyes is awesome!

Ready? Here is a treat just for you and the students in your life!

  2. Oh! Such adorable bookmarks!

  3. I think it's crucial that our kids get outdoors and into nature. I try to do that with my class often. It looks like they really enjoyed the farm. Thanks for the special bookmarks. They'll love them.

  4. Just became your newest follower! Such a cute blog. I totally know what you mean about wanting an extra hour in the school day. I am constantly trying to figure out how to make the most of our short time together and there's always more I wish we could do.

  5. Stopping by from Farley's link up, I love the idea of having the students do a currently each month definitely going to be adding that and Halloween bookmarks to my list for my early finishers.

  6. Love taking kids on field trips! I bring paperwork home every night and never touch it....maybe I should just leave it at home.
